The Collegiate Horseman’s Association at Penn State and Equine Research Team co-hosted an open house at the “Old Barn,” located on Park Avenue across from Beaver Stadium, prior to Saturday’s football game against Indiana.

The university’s barns are typically not open to the public, but CHAPS gave students, visitors and the community access to the facility to show the public what students in the equine science program are studying.

The program houses 70 horses and breeds about 20 foals each year.
